Egypt have a new hero: Liverpool striker Mohamed SalahThey're often referred to as "Salah's Egypt," and it's quite easy to see why.Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has scored five of Egypt's seven goals in World Cup qualifying, but none so crucial as his injury-time penalty Sunday that earned the Pharaohs a spot at next year's World Cup in Russia.The 25-year-old Salah had already given his team the lead against the Republic of Congo in the 63rd minute, slotting home after collecting a through pass from Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny.
